Review

'It is hard to imagine a beginner who could not learn from [this book]. If you know a young poet, give them this' The Times Literary Supplement

Synopsis

A basic introduction to English poetry since Chaucer - its main themes, genres and so on - for students and general readers alike, by a respected poet and former professor of poetry at Oxford. The book is based on a series of columns that Fenton wrote for the "Independent on Sunday", a sister column to David Lodge's series on English fiction which formed the basis of Lodge's book "The Art of Fiction".
